There are just two different parties arguing about this and niether are really wrong. The first is saying that it was a fluke play and you cant blame or punish a player for something that had no purposeful intent and the second is saying that the player was so dirty in the past that he should have been out of the league and thus this shouldnt have happened.
The thing about Cooke is he was brought into the league in the past era when headshots were not only OK, they were encouraged. He filled the "agitator's role, where he was played millions of dollars to play right on the edge, which was occasionally crossed. he did that because teams payed him to do it and it was his chance to stick in the NHL. Now its the opposite, he loses his paycheck if he plays like that. Its not fair to say he changed and is a better person when it happened under threat of unemployment, though on the flip side, its not fair to say he is a psycopath or a bad person when he was paid and encouraged to do that stuff in the past. We really dont know what Cooke is like for real. its all based on actions from a past era.
